Whether from bumping into a table or an unexplained mishap, bruises are quite normal. In fact, bruising becomes more common as adults age. A bruise occurs when tiny blood vessels (called capillaries) burst and release blood into the surrounding tissues. They are caused by impact to the area which can range from slight to extreme. As humans age, blood vessel walls become thinner and more vulnerable to puncture. In addition, skin becomes thinner and less protective of the blood vessels close to the surface; this occurs especially in women. As a result, bruises occur more often and from smaller impact. Even if bruises seem unavoidable, there may be a way to make them go away faster.
